This week Corey creates a realistic balloon against a blue sky all from scratch. Inspired by the Pixar’s new movie UP.

    Corey, your current tutorials based on new movies is terrific! One day, I hope you will produce some tutorials based on past movies, i.e. all the pixar movies (especially Cars), & other greats. (PS – all of your tutorials are fantastic — Thanks for sharing your amazing talents)

    Just saw Up this weekend. The balloons were my favorite part!

    Corey, could you take this a step further and do an animated balloon with color cast shadow? When the balloons passed over the street below there were these really cool colorized shadows that passed over everything. That part is still sticking in my head. Would love to see it as a tutorial. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great stuff as usual Corey.
    A quick question; when are you going to write a book on your techniques,?as you seem to be the one I follow most due to your expertise.

    For a PC, when he says delete, use your backspace key. Also, just in case you don’t know this, option is alt.

    I personally don’t think the plastic wrap did you a favor when it created a hard shadow that isn’t very natural looking. I love tutorials like these, and the sky was just one of those quick things that are very useful. I’ll make a note to look at other tutorials.
